behind that c-e-q-a review, there were more than 200 people as part of the aquatic park neighbors. we sat around and said whose name goes on the c-e-q-a review? the reason we had to file that c-e-q-a review is because the process upstream wasn't performed correctly. what we found as a result of the review was that the developer, in order to obtain a demolition permit, had misrepresented, i.e., lied on his applications about the age of the building, about its historical significance. thankfully, because of the review, there was the revelation that this in fact was property in a historic, prospective historic neighborhood, contiguous historic neighborhood block 26. we found that the person who had built the house and lived in the house had a direct historic recognition which is part of c-e-q-a. c-e-q-a recognizes historic contexts. because he was the reservoir keeper which is a block away. we also found out that the -- so, basically, the point of that is that if it weren't forsee qua in that case 869 would not have been -- it would have been demolished. it's an a forwardable house.

along the way. she was an aquatic ideologist and she did do some scientific work for the agency, the most is in the area of communications. she eventually became editor-in-chief, which meant she oversaw the publication,c reviewed lots of technical papers produced by the scientific staff and assertive in charge of the outwardly said the agency to the public. in the mid-1940s, carson had an idea for an ambitious series of booklets, pamphlets called conservation inaction. there's seven or eight of these and all and each of them deals with one of the newly established federal wildlife refugees, which needed to be explained to the public. the fish and wildlife service wanted everyone to understand why they're taking the land and setting it aside as refugees and in some places this is controversial. sportsmen are not used to having the government step in and scooped up what they were used to hunting and fishing on. so part of the mission was to explain the rationale for these refugees. one of these booklet was devoted not to a specific refuge, but the subject of conservation generally. th

you did, had three separate pools, put them together into one big large aquatic center. >> right. melissa: cut down on staff and people liked it better. you attacked fixed costs in health care and energy cost. that is problem a lot of communities have. how did you do that. >> right. what we did we realized revenues were decreasing. property taxes were going down in the area and sales taxes were decreasing. you can't increase revenue without increasing taxes and that is not very popular. we decided to attack our fixed costs which include health care. we did something miraculous. we actually involved our personnel. we actually, incentivized them by staying in shape, by staying fit. they can take a test. if they pass it, depending where they are on the level, they can get up to $250 a month to go toward their health care costs. >> that's freight. >> what we found that saved us $1.5 million annually. bid out our energy c. like sending out our energy contract to make sure it was competitive and got bids on it. that saved us $18 million. melissa: that's amazing. i don't want to rush sh

professional success at the agency. whether that would have happened had she signed on as the aquatic biologist and then tried to do lab work benchwork as one of the agencies is a a little less than certain. times were definitely different. nowhere in the written record does carson ever complain about this. she never ever uttered a single word about feeling that she wasn't given credit for something because she was a woman. and in fact she capitalized on the fact that when books about the ocean were being published critics and reviewers often remarked about how surprising it was how a woman would know about complicated things like oceanography and that a woman had actually gone out on a ship or put on a helmet and went under the water and looked at fish. this was sometimes overstated. she was much better in the library and better communicate with experts who would advisor on things but she always allow this stand that she was an intrepid voyager when in fact she wasn't. and that kind of like that because she sort of turned the tables on the people who said wow, can you believe the little woman
